Limón Dance Company showcases the range of its founder's choreographic mastery in a timely and moving program performed by dancers known for their "humility, unpretentiousness, and faith" (The New York Times). In The Traitor, Limón draws from the archetypal power struggle between Judas and Jesus, a charged indictment of political fear mongering that is fiercely relevant today. Live piano accompanies his sparkling Mazurkas, choreographed as a gift to his dancers. Orfeo, one of Limón's final works, is a lyrical lament of love set to the music of Beethoven.
